The Bloedel Conservatory. Named for its donor, forestry executive and philanthropist Prentice Bloedel, the Bloedel Conservatory occupies the highest point in Vancouver at the top of Queen Elizabeth Park. The triodetic-domed conservatory was opened on December 6, 1969 to display a tropical landscape of plant and bird species with the declared purpose of fostering a better appreciation and understanding of the world of plants. Along with its surrounding gardens, arboretum, fountain and plaza – highlighted by the Henry Moore sculpture “Knife Edge – Two Piece” – the conservatory and its environs form a cultural landscape of education and inspiration. Sponsored by Friends of the Bloedel Association.

Historic Joy Kogawa House. Joy Kogawa, author of the classic 1981 novel, Obasan, spent her early ears in this 1912 home. She and her family were evicted from the house in 1942 and sent into internment in the Kootenays, an experience shared by more than 22,000 Canadians of Japanese ancestry. A campaign by the Save the Joy Kogawa House Committee and TLC The Land Conservancy of B.C. succeeded in establishing the house as a writers' residence in 2006. Sponsored by the Historic Joy Kogawa House Society.

Livestock Building. Over 3,000 Japanese Canadian women, children and tuberculosis patients were unjustly detained here under traumatic and deplorable conditions between March 1942 - March 1943. A public facility since 1929, the Livestock Building gained national historic significance as a federally authorized wartime marshalling site. The incarceration, confiscation of property, and forced dispersal from the coast of 22,000 innocent Japanese Canadians from 1942 to 1949 was officially acknowledged as unjust by Canada in 1998. In commemoration of all Japanese Canadians interned.
